At the time, Bloom and Bieber were reportedly in Ibiza at a restaurant called Cipriani, on a Wednesday morning. In one account, the pop singer reportedly extended a hand to the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star, who refused to shake his hand.
Bieber asked Bloom what the problem was, and he mentioned Miranda Kerr. After that, Bieber walked away, and that is when Bloom swung. In another version, Bieber hinted that he slept with Kerr, and then Bloom attacked him.

In the same month after the supposed altercation, Bieber posted a picture of a crying Bloom on Instagram. It appeared that he wanted to taunt him even further after their encounter.
According to Us Magazine, the photo was of Bloom appearing to cry at the opening night of “Romeo & Juliet” in September 2013. Bieber did not caption the image, but his message was pretty clear.
On August 1st that same year, The Guardian reported the incident in an opinion piece about the issue. According to the outlet, Bloom engaged in the fight to maintain his dignity, whereas Bieber only fought for bragging rights.
At the time, it was stated that the two celebrities got involved in the fight to salvage their waning careers. 26-year-old Bieber had not released another popular song since his hit track “Baby” and Bloom’s acting career would have eventually dried up.
Following their shocking act, Bieber posted a photo of Bloom's ex-wife in a bikini, only to delete it a short time later. According to E! Online, Bieber was very persistent in contacting Kerr two years before at the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The “Boyfriend” singer was a performer at that year's event and caught up with the model backstage. Kerr was married to Bloom at the time, and she and Bieber reportedly seemed too friendly, leading to speculations that they were flirting.
Bloom and Kerr split back in 2013, after their six-year relationship. According to E! Online, in October that year, the actor’s rep told the outlet that the couple had amicably separated months prior.
The rep added that they had decided to formalize their separation at the time. Bloom and Kerr started dating in 2007 and kept their relationship a secret. The following year they made their first public appearance.
In June 2010, they announced their engagement after keeping their relationship on the down-low. The next month they tied the knot, and Bloom's rep confirmed the news; no further details were shared about the pair's wedding ceremony.
In October 2019, the Insider reported that Bloom’s fiancée at the time, Katy Perry, went solo to Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s wedding five years after their feud. Their wedding took place at the luxury waterfront resort Montage Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina.
Paparazzi photos showed Perry hopping off a plane with Kendall Jenner before the ceremony. “The Outpost” star, Bloom, was nowhere to be seen in the images.
